YOUR FIRST VISIT

 

To Schedule a First Appointment:

(PLEASE READ ENTIRE PAGE BEFORE SCHEDULING ONLINE)

You can either call or email to request an appointment.  Please do not use the client portal to request an appointment unless we have spoken by phone or email prior and we have agreed to a weekly spot that will work for us both.

If you call or email and we agree upon a date, I will direct you to the client portal to schedule this first appointment.  This will enter you into my electronic system so that you can more easily use the client portal in the future.  It will also grant you access to my intake forms to be completed before your first visit.

Please Be Advised:  If you request an appointment through my client portal before we've spoken, and I am not accepting new clients, I will respond through the client portal to your request that I am not accepting new clients at this time.  For a list of therapists that I often refer to, please click here for my resource list.  

Please Be Advised:  There will be times when a spot is open in my calendar for one week but is not open every week.  This is one reason I ask folks to call or email before going onto my client portal.  If you do request an appointment online before we've spoken, I will respond by email to double check that the time spot you requested will work ongoing.

 

Address and Parking:

My office address is 31 Clayton Street, Suite 1. Heading North on Charlotte Street, Clayton is the left hand turn directly across from Alpha Real Estate— or directly after the Starbucks. The house will be on your left hand side. There is designated parking for patients and clients of the building. If you enter from the parking lot, the entrance will be up some stairs and will enter you to a waiting area. If you enter through the front door facing the street, you will need to walk down the hall to wait in the waiting area.

 

payment

I am in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield and will file all claims for BCBS clients.  I can provide a superbill for clients who wish to file for out of network benefits and be reimbursed for your fees.  I also accept payments from health savings accounts. 

I also accept clients who wish to pay without insurance.  Typical in-office sessions last either 45 or 60 minutes depending on our agreement together.  Please contact me directly with questions about my full fee.

Payment is expected at or before your visit.  I am able to accept Credit Cards, Checks, Money Orders, or Cash during your visit. If you wish to pay by credit card in between visits you can do so through the portal by entering your credit card information and giving me permission to charge your card or by making a payment through PayPal (See Payment Button Below).  An additional 3%  fee will be added to all Credit Card Payments in the office and through the portal or PayPal.
